embedSWF() Function and Arguments

This section describes the embedWF() function provided in SWFObject 2 and its 5 required arguments and 5 optional arguments.

Embedding a simple SWF file using SWFObject is easy. Embedding more complex SWF files requires us to read the embedSWF() function and it 5 required arguments and 5 optional arguments more carefully:

swfobject.embedSWF(swfUrl, id, width, height, version, expressInstallSwfurl, flashvars, params, attributes, callbackFn):

As you can see, embedSWF() is powerful, it allows to enter everything we can enter in "object" element through this single function call. See the next section for an example on using "flashvars" parameters.
